“A woman has to live her life, or live to repent not having lived it.” ― D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover

“The filthy book that set us free” Daily Telegraph

“Lawrence has written the best descriptions of sexual experience which have yet been done in English. It is certainly not true, as is sometimes asserted, that erotic sensations cannot or ought not to be written about. D. H. Lawrence has demonstrated here how interesting and how varied they are, and how important to the comprehension of any emotional situation where they are involved.” Edmund Wilson

“. . . the adulterous affair between a sexually unfulfilled upper-class married woman and the gamekeeper who works for the estate owned by her husband. Now that we’re used to reading about sex, and seeing it in the movies, it’s apparent that the novel is memorable for better reasons: namely, Lawrence’s masterful and lyrical writing, and a story that takes us bodily into the world of its characters.” Geoff Dyer

LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER is one of the most beautiful love stories in English fiction. Read the book that was banned for thirty years and whose publication and subsequent trial in 1960 changed culture forever.

D. H. Lawrence

“The greatest imaginative novelist of our generation” E. M. Forster

David Herbert Lawrence was born in 1885 in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire. His father was a coal miner, but his mother was determined that her children should not end up in the mines. He won a scholarship to Nottingham High School, although he left without qualifications. After studying at Nottingham University, Lawrence received his teaching certificate at 22.

His first novel, ‘The White Peacock was published in 1911, when he was 25. In 1912 he fell in love with Frieda von Richthofen, who was married to Professor Ernest Weekly. Frieda left her husband and three children, and eloped with Lawrence to Bavaria and then to Austria, Germany and Italy.

Lawrence's radical views on sex, life, and art earned him many enemies and he endured official persecution, censorship, and misrepresentation of his creative work throughout the second half of his life.

D. H. Lawrence died at Villa Robermond, in Vence, France on March 2, 1930.

A prolific novelist, story writer, critic, poet and painter, he was one of the greatest figures in 20th-century English literature.

D. H. Lawrence’s novels include: The White Peacock (1911),The Trespasser (1912), Sons and Lovers (1913), The Rainbow (1915), Women in Love (1920), The Lost Girl (1920), Aaron's Rod (1922), Kangaroo (1923), The Boy in the Bush (1924), The Plumed Serpent (1926), Lady Chatterley's Lover (1928), The Escaped Cock (1929), The Virgin and the Gypsy (1930).
